Sep 24 2018
Attorneys Debra Katz, Lisa Banks, and Michael Bromwich have announced that they have reached an agreement with the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding their client's willingness to testify about an alleged sexual assault committed by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said lawyers for Ford are contesting two GOP conditions of the proposed 10 a.m. Thursday hearing - that Ford and Kavanaugh will be the only witnesses and that an independent counsel will ask the questions. "We are hopeful that we can reach agreement on details".
Christine Blasey Ford's decision followed days of negotiations and came after Trump turned against her and said her accusation could not be true.
"Senate Republicans went from looking accommodating and generous to looking like they are getting played unless they see this as stalling and a delay tactic". They could also use Republican staff attorneys on the committee. "I don't remember whether we said anything to each other when I left his office", she said.
Kavanaugh has denied the allegation and pledged to testify at Monday's hearing.
Ford accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her 36 years ago when the two were in high school.
The president's comments infuriated Democrats, dismayed many Republicans and risked further alienating women voters ahead of the November 6 mid-term elections, in which Democrats have a chance to win control of the House and perhaps the Senate.

Kavanaugh's confirmation appears to turn mostly on the support or opposition of three Republican senators: Jeff Flake of Arizona, who is on the Judiciary panel that Republicans control 11-10; Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
'I want to listen to her, but I'm being honest with you and everybody else.What am I supposed to do? "Can we set up a time later this afternoon to continue negotiations?"
Mr Kavanaugh, 53, an appellate court judge, denied the allegation and said he wanted to testify as soon as possible to clear his name. "You know, when you take a look at this in honest terms, I believe that not only Judge Kavanaugh, but certainly Dr. Ford deserves a fair hearing".
Since Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's story became public, she has asked for the FBI to investigate - a request that demonstrates her sincerity and her confidence that an impartial inquiry will further corroborate and confirm the account she has given. As The New Yorker puts it, "The real question is: Will the White House and Republican leaders actually allow a potentially sensational set of hearings, with all the political risks that would entail, just weeks before the midterm elections in which they are already struggling mightily to attract women's votes in key suburban districts?"
While Kavanaugh did condemn sexual assault during the practice, and avoiding directly discrediting Ford, he did not come off well when the questions grew more probing, seemingly reluctant to take the pounding the faux committee members were presenting him with.
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said in an interview on Sunday's This Week on ABC that some Republicans have said they will make their final determination on Kavanaugh based on the upcoming hearing.
The vice president says the way that some Democrats have conducted themselves during the confirmation process "is a disgrace and a disservice to the Senate and the American people".
